Rising UK duo Delac recently announced their forthcoming EP ‘Beyond The Clouds’ which lands on the pair’s imprint Delac Records next month. Yesterday the pair unleashed the first single ‘All I Ever Need’, a smoked-out house groove that lives right in-between the rustic Aussie lo-fi scene and the sunkissed Balearic sounds of Ibiza – a luscious first taste of what’s to come.  

Delac is comprised of budding London-based producers and songwriters James McAdam and Stephen Dooley who both boast quite contrasting creative backgrounds – celebrating unified artistry through divergence. The Delac sound is crafted with dancefloors at the forefront of their agenda, leaning on multiple influences including progressive house, electro, UKG, and leftfield pop.

The duo’s workflow is a fluid and introspective look into the pair’s background, each bringing their unique flavour to music creation. James focuses on songwriting, storytelling, and narrative sensibilities, while Stephen, with a background in computer science, brings musical vitality and technical expertise to the workflow. The ‘Beyond The Clouds’ EP was made with the dancefloor in mind, whereas their previous releases were much more cerebral – they’ve pivoted to making music to make people dance. They’re testing out their portable live setup at the moment and recently played the closing set for Spotify’s Pride party with Jodie Harsh. Delac notably make their Irish debut at the coveted All Together Now festival next month alongside Jamie XX, Caribou, and Daniel Avery.

Their latest single ‘All I Ever Need’ is a dreamy trip through delicate house sounds for the soul. The UK pair sprinkle delicate organ keys over acoustic-style shuffled drums to create a mellow groove that is just as suited to an evening smoke session as it is to a dingy London basement club. Yerning vocal swells roll into mouth-watering strings, leaving a celestial feel on an otherwise sunkissed track. Deep and silky house music direct from East London, bliss.
